inches, probably closer to 2 feet at this point, because that was the number given to us earlier this morning from boston's logan airport. the big question is going to be just how much snow actually fell, because this is -- there's a lot of wonder in the city about whether or not this might be one for the record books. the record was 2003, 27.5 inches. so as people try to dig out, they try to get power back, we'll wait and see what the final number was. mike? >> tory, right now, 12:30 on the east coast. are you noticing people coming out of their homes right now, or is it pretty quiet out there on the streets where you are in boston? >> reporter: let me actually take you over here so you can take a look at that. hopefully you'll be able to see. but some people out and about with their dogs playing in this park here. more and more people sort of as the day goes on, but not the amount you would see on a regular saturday out here. we're in a very popular area off of state street, lots of restaurants. maybe people getting the a little bit of cabin fever, although they are still being
